• Challenge Of The Masters

    Feb 28, 2015

    Despite the fact that ‘Challenge Of The Masters’ hasn’t aged as well as some of Liu Chia-Liang’s other notable works, there’s undoubtedly much on offer for genre fans and the casual cinema-goer.

  • Disciples Of The 36th Chamber

    Mar 8, 2015

    ‘Disciples Of The 36th Chamber’ is a quality film; from the choreography to Liu Chia-Liang’s artistically composed frames, this is a more sophisticated kung fu film.

  • Drunken Master II

    Mar 9, 2015

    This is truly a masterpiece of the genre with Chan, who was approaching his 40th birthday at the time, on astounding form.

  • Drunken Master III

    Mar 9, 2015

    The weak plot and general ridiculousness are just too much to bear, and most of the star power winds up being utterly wasted.

  • Drunken Monkey

    Mar 9, 2015

    The choreography is refreshing and innovative though the storyline is badly developed and cannot fall back on well-written characters.

  • Heroes Of The East

    May 23, 2015

    ‘Heroes Of The East’ starts relatively slowly, but when the storyline develops beyond the basic exposition, this is another kung fu treat from ‘The Pops’.

  • Legendary Weapons Of China

    Apr 11, 2015

    ‘Legendary Weapons of China’ loses impetus when it concentrates on the distracting sub-plot involving Fu Sheng’s kung-fu charlatan, but it is still a refined entry in the genre.

  • Mad Monkey Kung Fu

    Apr 18, 2015

    ‘Mad Monkey Kung Fu’ features an excellent cast, first-rate action, an absorbing plot and a powerful soundtrack – more than enough reasons to recommend this to any true film fan.

  • New Kids In Town

    May 4, 2015

    This is a modern day martial arts actioner in the style of the 80’s best, and should therefore be sought out by fans of similar fare. It will not disappoint.

  • One-Armed Swordsman

    May 7, 2015

    Without any argument, ‘One-Armed Swordsman’ is therefore a quality swordplay film that has much to offer to viewers today.

  • Operation Scorpio

    Jul 8, 2015

    This film has been elevated to cult status in recent years and has become a huge favourite with a world-wide audience. All of this is thoroughly deserved.

  • Pedicab Driver

    May 11, 2015

    The final reel is raw power and energy as Sammo takes on a small army of goons before meeting his match in Billy Chow.

  • The 8 Diagram Pole Fighter

    Mar 10, 2015

    Multi-layered and superbly made, ‘The 8 Diagram Pole Fighter’ remains one of the greatest martial arts movies of all time.

  • The Thirty Million Rush

    Jun 10, 2015

    The strength of Karl Maka’s slice of entertainment is its wilful exuberance and obvious intention of creating a fun atmosphere.

  • Twelve Deadly Coins

    Jun 18, 2015

    Perhaps the greatest flaw found within this well-made, yet uninspiring swordplay film is its reliance on theatrical melodrama rather than tension or real emotion.
